Pom Pom Sweater

J.Crew Factory Sweater, sold out (similar splurge, save and steal)// Paige Denim (save version here for under $50)// Isaac Mizrahi Flats, sold out (similar splurge, save and steal)// Zara Tote, old (similar)

I love a simple cream color pullover sweater for early spring so I was thrilled when I found this one last year.  I wore it so much and received a ton of compliments on it.  So, I was incredibly disappointed when I accidentally put it in the dryer and shrunk it to the point of no return.  Don’t you hate when that happens?  I’d been on the lookout for a similar version for a while when I spotted this pom pom sweater at J.Crew Factory a few weeks ago.  It was already on sale plus an extra 40% off so it was a total no-brainer.  I love the charming pom poms, the ribbed details, and the neutral color.  It’s the perfect sweater to throw on with your favorite jeans and flats.  Unfortunately, this particular sweater is already sold out but I’m linking to a similar option for under $40. I also think it would look great styled with denim shorts (currently coveting this pair) for cool summer evenings.

Switching to Safer Beauty Products + Beautycounter Giveaway

If you’re a regular reader here, then you probably already know that I’m a huge proponent of safe beauty products.  I wasn’t always as passionate about this cause.  In fact, if you had asked me five years ago, I would have told you that I would never switch from my favorite tinted moisturizer, bronzer, eye shadow(…)

My Thoughts on Mom-Shaming

My Thoughts on Mom-Shaming

I’m not going to get into specifics but I was mom-shamed the other week and it really left me feeling raw and fragile.  I experienced a range of emotions from embarrassment, frustration, anger, sadness, and indignation.  Thank God for my close friend who lent a compassionate ear and put things into perspective for me.  She(…)
